During monsoon what matters the most is the material you wear, either it is clothes or the shoes you wear.

Silk: Though this may sound a bit out of place, a lighter variety of silk is great during the rainy season. This fabric is just the one for the fashionable you as it gives you a chance to dress up in style during monsoon. Silk stays straight during all the rainy mess and also it dries in a jiffy.
Denim: It is thick and it is stylish. Pull out your denim and adorn them during rain. Wear denim jackets or a denim caprice and look stylish. Even with a little bit of mud stain, they look stylish. So, if you are to travel in the rain, wear them.
Nylon and Chiffon: Oh yes, they are lifesavers during rain. It is a must in every woman’s wardrobe.
Choose loose and light tops/ bottoms
Wearing heavy fabrics can be a nightmare during the monsoon as on getting wet, they tend to get heavier. Hence, avoid long kurtas till rains are around. Instead, opt for short Kurtis or light T-shirts. Coming to fabrics, lycra and polyester and good choices as they are known to be wrinkle-free and tend faster in this weather.
Shorts and capris
When the rains arrive, the best bottomwear clothing would be shorts, capris or even short skirts. However, make sure that your shorts or capris are loose-fitting as that will allow them to dry quicker. Also, when your shoes all go splashy, shorts are safe from the splatters. For less casual occasions, you could go for culottes or cropped pants.If your workplace allows it, smart formal skirts are a good bet during the monsoon season.
If you prefer a more traditional Indian outfit during monsoon season, then avoid salwars and patialas, but instead pick up a pair short kurtis with leggings or churidars. Long dupattas, which are difficult to manage during the rains, can be replaced with scarfs or stoles. Stay away from prints and fabric that tend to bleed when wet.
Colours for the season
Say bye to pastels and whites for the season. It is time for darker colours like dark blues, brown, grey. Darker colour shades do a better job at hiding water and mud stains, a common issue faced when women dress for monsoon. At the same time, you could balance the look with neon coloured layers and accessories.
